Would that not be because they are organized in a grid, so that Jaws is giving you the total of that particular section?

Re: unlabeled graphics

if graphics announcement is set to labeled, that would mean the website
is displaying a graphic that JAWS cannot describe because it does not
have the alternative text label, which is how a screen reader would be
able to "read" the graphic to you.

OK surely copy and paste works better than my results so far. Today I went to my cell phone carriers web page and looked up my billing info.
I found the amount due and used shift right arrow to select the amount and then control c to copy the four digit number. The number I tried to copy was 51.52. When I tried to paste the number on another web page to pay the bill a control V gave the amount 2.00. Not even close. Surely I am doing something wrong to get such poor results.

I used Betty, the best of  the female choices.  I agree with a  recent commenter.  Many of these voices might be useful if your voicing cartoon characters, but they’re good for little else.  The original Shelly (circa 1997) sounded like Marge Simpson, and who in the world would want to listen to that day in and day out?

That may have been a ridiculous question then, but not so much now.

There are some very "sexy" sounding voices available for speech synthesis that sound virtually human.  This is particularly so on GPS devices, and some of these voices are a hoot (unless someone is easily offended by directions being given in very suggestive, as opposed to demanding, tones).

Hi,

Although I am getting used to playing around with voices and their
settings, I have not been able to change the pitch for any of them.  Is
this possible?  For example, the Reid voice would be reasonable except
it is a bit too bassy.  On the other hand, Glenn sounds better, but this
voice is too high to suite me.  Is there a way I can change the
settings?  Also, does pitch work for other synthes?  Thanks.

Re: closing programs

 

Sometimes using the pass key through (Jaws Key+3 on the number row) works for me when I use Alt+F4. Of course this would indicate that Jaws somehow blocks Alt+F4.

An alternative to using the numpad

David & his pack of dogs
 

I was given an external keyboard for my lap top.  I have no idea how it was done but, the numlock has been converted to a paste key.  This means to use the numpad is virtually impossible to navigate with JAWS.  To arrow to the right with the numpad, just gets you number 6.  Is there an alternative to using the numpad with JAWS 18?

My female manager heard the senthetic voice and said, “Can’t you get a sexy man to be the voice?  Does it have to be so robotic?”

That may have been a ridiculous question then, but not so much now.

There are some very "sexy" sounding voices available for speech synthesis that sound virtually human.  This is particularly so on GPS devices, and some of these voices are a hoot (unless someone is easily offended by directions being given in very suggestive, as opposed to demanding, tones).

Re: voices and pitch

Hi,

The pitch I am taklkig about is the overall pitch change for the voices.  For example, I think Glenn sounds too trebly and Reid sounds too bassy.  So, I like having the ability to set each voice just the way I like it.  This change only shows up when a specific cursor is chosen.  The pitch for capitalization can be changed with the default for all cursors settings.  The difference is the pitch changes only for the capitalized word under the default cursor setting and it changes for the total voice with the setting I was looking for, and found, with help.  I hope this makes sense to you.

I don’t know if this has been covered by you Carol but, to change the pitch, that feature is under the spell upper case function settings.

Hi Sieghard,

OK, thanks.  This makes sense.  I will try it.  I sort of like all of the cursors sounding the same, but I suppose it would have advantages with separate voices.

You can’t adjust pitch for the All Context voice, you have to be on one of the other 4, PC cursor voice, Jaws cursor voice, keyboard voice or tutor and message voice.

Hi Carol,

 

Try the following:

1. Press, Insert / Jaws key + J, to open the Jaws context menu.

2. Press the letter, O, to open Options.

3. Press the letter, V, to open Voices, or arrow down to it & press enter.           

4. Press enter on, Voice Adjustment, & tab down to, Voice Adjust.  Here you can make the pitch change amongst many other setting adjustments.  Make sure to Apply & Okay your changes.

Take care, Mike.

Hi,

Although I am getting used to playing around with voices and their
settings, I have not been able to change the pitch for any of them.  Is
this possible?  For example, the Reid voice would be reasonable except
it is a bit too bassy.  On the other hand, Glenn sounds better, but this
voice is too high to suite me.  Is there a way I can change the
settings?  Also, does pitch work for other synthes?  Thanks.

Carol
